I had wanted to make this a video message, but time got away from me. Imagine that, at this time of year! So, you are getting this written, but no less heart-felt message from me.

Do you know I’m crazy about you? Yes, you…my bloggy friends, near and far, in-person-known, and cyber-known. I’m blown away at the privilege of having you visit my little corner of the blog world and allowing me a peek into yours. I love doing life with you and loving Jesus with you and, now, can’t imagine my life without you.

So, it’s from the deepest part of my heart that I wish you Merry Christmas. May your time with family and friends be warm and wonderful, and may our Lord show Himself to you in a new and fresh way, causing you to remember this Christmas in particular for years to come. Whether you are traveling or welcoming guests into your own home, I pray you’ll take some time to pull back and reflect upon the magnificence of a virgin birth in a crude shelter; take pause to consider the hope found in the first revelation of this wonder to a motley crew of shepherds, a Savior born to save ALL men, regardless of station or rank. Oh, praise Him!

I’m heading out to Texas to be with my family this weekend and will be on break through the week. I look forward to returning to stories of your Christmases and bringing a few of my own.

Bless you sweet friends…so much love from my family to yours!

All my love,
